April is National Poetry Month! Celebrate it with Fatimah Asghar's IF THEY COME FOR US. I started marking my favorite poems and eventually gave up when I realized every page was dog-eared. This collection entwines poems about the India/Pakistan Partition and Asghar's family history with personal explorations of queerness, the loss of her parents, and growing up as a Pakistani Muslim girl in post-9/11 America. There's truly something in here for everyone.
